From open to close on February 9, 2015, Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q will donate twenty percent of sales to The Giving Kitchen (TGK), in celebration of the life of fellow chef and friend, Charlotte Nelson. Charlotte was diagnosed with stage four inflammatory breast cancer in November of 2012. She lost her battle with the disease on February 9, 2013 at the age of 37. To remember Charlotte on the date of her passing, Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q will raise funds to provide assistance to members of Atlanta’s restaurant community who find themselves facing unanticipated hardship. The funds will go directly to TGK.
The Giving Kitchen provides financial support to members of Atlanta’s restaurant community facing unanticipated crises. In 2014, TGK helped more than 115 employees find peace of mind during emergency situations. This growth continues as word of TGK spreads, as evidenced by the sharp increase in applications for assistance.
“We are always eager to help TGK. The TGK team is instrumental in providing emergency assistance to restaurant industry workers in a direct way.” Jonathan Fox, co-proprietor of Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q.
As unique as its mission, TGK’s origin is a compelling testimony to the caring, generous nature of Atlanta’s culinary community. TGK was inspired by the outpouring of support generated when young Atlanta chef Ryan Hidinger was diagnosed with late stage cancer in December of 2012. The community knew Ryan through his restaurant work history including Bacchanalia, Floataway Café, Muss & Turner’s, and the Staplehouse supper club.
